Chiefs Will Have More Options As The Offseason Goes On

New, comments

This is just a reminder that the Kansas City Chiefs aren't done making moves, even if the exciting part of free agency is over. We heard this morning that the Chiefs should be considered one of the favorites to land Dallas Clark, the former Colts tight end who visited Kansas City earlier this month.

There are other potential options besides the guys that are currently free agents. For example, I saw this report in the Denver Post about defensive end Ty Warren, who reportedly isn't interested in a pay cut:

Warren is scheduled to make $4 million this year. But after he missed the past two full seasons because of injuries, the Broncos would like him back with a base salary in the $1 million to $1.5 million range.

Warren, 31, hasn't been attending the Broncos' offseason conditioning and workout program the past two weeks.

Who knows how Warren's situation will turn out but let's say it's a possibility that the Broncos cut him. The Chiefs were rumored to be interested in Warren last year when he became available. Would they still be interested, two years removed from the last time Warren stepped on the field?

It's around this time of year, as offseason workouts get started, that you could see some veterans released, whether for performance or financial reasons. I don't know who the next veteran will be but this is just a reminder that, while free agency has mostly dried up, there will be more options down the line.

Defensive end and safety are two positions to keep an eye on. I think the Chiefs could and will look at adding depth at both of those positions.
